SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 369,545, dated September 6, 1887.

Application filed February 25, 1887. Serial No. 228,884. (N model.)

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that we, DANIEL LEE MONROE and SAMUEL FRANCIS STOKE, citizens of the United States of America, and residents of Bloomfield, in the county of Davis and State of Iowa, have invented a Fountain Auger- Power and Tile-Injector, ofwhich the following is a specification.

Heretofore the method of securing water (in [O the absence of springs or creeks) has been to dig or bore perpendicularly into the earth and raise the water thus found to the surface by means of pumps or buckets.

The object of this invention is to bore into IS the ground at the base of hills or groundswells in a horizontal direction, for the purpose of securing a continuous flow of water for stock and other purposes, thereby obviating the labor of raising it from perpendicular wells by the old methods. To accomplish this purpose we have invented a method of constructing such wells and a machine for accomplishing such construction, which is called the fountain auger-power and tile-injector, a drawing of which is presented on Sheets 1 and 2 accompanying this specification.

Our method of constructing such wells is as follows: first, to bore horizontally into the ground by means of a boring-point and hollow shaft; then to introduce tile into the bore of the shaft, and then, holding said tile against retraction by a crowd or stay rod, to withdraw the shaft by unscrewing it from the point, which is thus left in the ground. The me chanical instrumentalities which we employ for this purpose are described as follows:

In the drawings, Figure 1 is a plan view of the machine. Fig. Zisaside elevation. Figs. 3 to 8 show details.

On Sheet 1, Fig. 1, H represents frame of machine. T Trepresent taps in frame H, through which the screws 1; 1) pass, which screw-shafts are connected by the flanged 'rotating bar B. u a on same shaft represent smooth bearings designed to throw the machine out of gear when withdrawing augershaft F by means of the chain L, Fig. 2, which chain passes around the shaft 1?, which is turned by-the lever K, which is bolted to the cap J. I represents the master-wheel, which meshes into .or turns the wheel 0, which communicates a rotary motion to the flanged bar 13 and its attachments o o and u u. A A rep resent bridge-trees, in which rest the gudgeons 5 D D. 0 represents a step on which the shaft Prests. MM represent the supports on which rests the cap N.

Fig. 3, Sheet 2, is a sectional view of wheel 0, taken upon line y y of Fig. 5, showing the gudgeon-block D, the flanged bar B in section, and friction-rollers E in gudgeon-block D. X represents slot in center of wheel 0, through which the flanged bar B-passes.

Fig. 4 shows section of gudgeon D, the square part of which fits in wheel 0.

Fig. 5 is designed to represent a sectional part of wheel 0 upon line w w ofFig. 3 showing friction-rollers E and section Offlanged bar B adjusted between friction-rollers in gudgeon- 7c block D.

Fig. 6 represents wheel 0, showing the gudgeon D, which revolves in bridgetree A.

Fig. 7 shows uncoupled sections of hollow auger shaft F and auger-head G.

Fig. 8 shows the manner of withdrawing the augershaft F, leaving the auger-head G in the ground on completion ofthe boring; also, sections of tiling S S S, injected through the hollow shaft F, and held in place by the crowd 8c or stay rod R while the hollow shaft F is being withdrawn by the chain L.

The swell on the forward part of o, beyond u, is designed to represent a short coupling connecting boring-shaft F by screwing thereon.

We are aware that levers and wheels are old devices; but

\Vhat we claim as new, and for which we desire to secure Letters Patent, is- 0 1. The herein-described method for introducing tile horizontally into the ground,which consists in boring horizontally into the ground by a boring-point and hollow shaft, passing the tiles in succession through said hollow 9 5 shaft, and then removing said shaft, substantially as described, and for the purpose set forth.

2. ihe combination of the boring-point, the sections of hollow shafting detachable from said point, the stay-rod, the shaft 1, chain L, and lever K, substantially as set forth.

5 3. The combination of the wheel 0, provided with the gudgeons D and the friction- M. B. HORN, rollers, the flanged bar B, having the threaded DAVID DUFFIELD.

portions 2; v, the smooth portions u u, and the taps T, substantially as set forth.
